Ford Fiesta wins 2022 Carbuyer Used Car of the Year award

A multiple award winner as a new car in the past, the Ford Fiesta has now been named the Carbuyer Used Car of the Year for 2022

Ford Fiesta - Best Used Car of the Year 2022

The Ford Fiesta has won the Carbuyer Used Car of the Year 2022, adding to its impressive haul of previous Carbuyer awards.

The same qualities that a Fiesta has when new make it a worthy winner of our Used Car of the Year award. We particularly like the comfortable and intuitive interior, plus the blend of performance and economy. There are a wide range of engines and specifications to choose from, including rugged Active versions, lavish Titanium editions and a hot ST model.

But, with prices starting from just £9,000 on our sister site BuyaCar, a used Ford Fiesta is also excellent value. With so much choice, you’re virtually guaranteed to find your ideal Fiesta.

For the first time, we have handed out more than one used car award - 16, in fact - and the Fiesta also took the top spot in our Best Used Small Car category. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to see the full list of winners in our 2022 best used car awards.

Ford Fiesta: Best Used Small Car

When this Fiesta was launched, it fended off talented opposition to become our Car of the Year. It then repeated its achievement the following year. The Ford Fiesta ST also scooped our Best Hot Hatchback award in 2019, 2020 and 2021. Additionally, in 2020, we named the Fiesta our Carbuyer Car of the Decade.

Carbuyer editor Richard Ingram said: “The Ford Fiesta won our overall new Car of the Year title in both 2018 and 2019 – the only car to have taken top honours two years in a row. The blend of comfort, refinement, practicality and technology, as well as class-leading dynamics, make it impossible to beat. Sheer choice ensures the Ford Fiesta is a fantastic second-hand small car.”

The facelifted Ford Fiesta has just been launched but changes amount to minor cosmetic changes to the styling and touchscreen graphics. As a result, a used Fiesta will still give you everything you should expect from a quality supermini.
